Regular visitors to this site will know that I’m a big fan of Scott’s (in fact, he was kind enough to say this about a a certain new novel being released in early June: “Moody nails what it means to be human by making humans into something else. A brilliant, savage, species-wide look in the mirror.”).
Last year, Scott released THE ROOKIE, and now he’s back with the sequel: THE STARTER. Out in September but available now for pre-order, it’s described as “Star Wars meets The Godfather meets Any Given Sunday” – how can you resist that? From Scott’s site:
Last season, 19-year-old rookie quarterback Quentin Barnes overcame his racism and unified his team. He led the Ionath Krakens to a lower-tier championship, a championship that earns them promotion into the meat grinder known as “Tier One.”
Now, he and the Krakens have to compete against the greatest football teams ever assembled and do far more than just survive each game. As he rebuilds the team in his own image, Quentin’s quest for a Tier One championship begins in THE STARTER.
Scott is again releasing this title independently. Demand will be high, so click the banner below to head over to the site and pre-order.
